Compact scrubbers for laboratories

Properties and applications of gas scrubbers for laboratory use:


  • compact design
  • self-priming, additional fan not required
  • high separation efficiency over the entire
    operating range
  • good absorption behaviour, even with considerable flow rate fluctuations
  • Module consisting of jet scrubber and column
  • integrated pump
  • optional: heat exchanger can be installed
  • optional: MSR equipment (e.g. pH, redox, temperature, density and/or level control)
  • many expansion options
  • easily transportable
  • inexpensive
  • various materials possible, e.g. thermoplastics, GFK (also with liner), stainless steel, steel with liner (rubber coating), special materials (alloy, enamel), etc.

Applications for laboratory gas scrubbers:

  • Direct gas cooling
  • Pre-saturation (possibly quench head needed)
  • Physical absorption
  • Chemisorption
  • Dust separation
  • Condensation
  • Combination of cooling, absorption and dust separation
  • Pilot plants in laboratories or technical schools
  • Emergency units (e.g. HCl or chlorine emergency unit)
